A Team Approach to State-of-the-Art Care

Good Samaritan Hospital is highly respected for its state-of-the-art programs in joint replacement and hip surgeries. In addition, specialists conduct research into bone and cartilage disease and related disorders.

Orthopaedic patients at Good Samaritan Hospital can expect their doctors will use state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. The highly trained multidisciplinary team includes specialists in perioperative services, anesthesiology, orthopaedic nursing, physical medicine and rehabilitation, pain management, and internal medicine. Patients benefit from high quality of care before, during and after their surgery.

Many orthopaedic procedures that were performed as “open” surgeries are now routinely performed using minimally invasive techniques. For patients, that means smaller incisions, less pain and blood loss, decreased risk of complications and a quicker return to their normal daily activities. Other innovative techniques used by specialists who practice at the Hospital include:

Computer navigation – GPS technology allows for unprecedented accuracy in joint replacement. Using this technique results in better function for patients in the first three months after surgery, an earlier discharge from the hospital and less use of assistive devices.

Epidural anesthesia – Epidural anesthesia is safer than conventional inhaled anesthesia and helps lower the risk of deep vein thrombosis, which can occur after joint replacement surgery. This type of anesthesia also allows for continued administration of pain control following surgery.
